The 100 Beard Project by Niqi Segers makes me think twice about facial hair. These fantastical and often comical subjects are far from intimidating, and the possibilities behind her bearded creations seem endless. Undeniably unique, neon post-it notes, Barbie doll heads and green grass form mustaches and goatees within these featured works.
Niqi Segers is responsible for the entire concept and photography work for this 100 Beard Project.
Implications - Bears are one of the ways that men personalize themselves and their appearances. With such a focus being placed upon meterosexuality and a new societal acceptance of feminized males, products that can allow men to have fun with their appearances will far surpass those with outdated views of masculinity.
